Dubrovnik Museums - Archaeological Museum in cooperation with the Archaeological Museum in Zagreb will open an exhibition ‘Roman golden earrings’ on Friday in Revelin Fortress. The opening will start at 8 pm.
The Archaeological Museum in Zagreb brings around 50 Roman gold earrings from the 1st to the 4th centuries, including luxurious specimens decorated with pearls, precious stones and glass pastes. These are mostly random finds from various known ancient sites such as Siscia (Sisak), Salona (Solin), Sirmium (Sremska Mitrovica), Viminacium and others.
Typologically they are very different, from simple shapes to top-of-the-line craftsmanship works by a variety of techniques such as casting, pulling and wrapping wire, punching, splitting techniques, filigree and granulation.
The authors of the exhibition are Dora Kusan Spalj and Nikoleta Perok. The exhibition includes bilingual Croatian-English catalog and souvenirs - copies of the earrings. The exhibition will remain open until November 15th this year.
